NFL GM says so. Contradicts what I've been hearing on this board.

Our 2008 draft. Nothing even close.

I think the article may be correct in not having a ton of impact players, but there are solid contributors deep into the draft. Its just not a "sexy" 1st round I think was the article's main point imo. Every team needs those solid starters and I think there are more than enough in this draft.

Yup...thin at the top for sure (the "elite" prospects in this draft simply don't compare to elite players in past drafts), but overall it's a deep draft class. Rounds 2-3 should be stronger than usual, and I've heard that there are more draftable players at the end of the draft, so we could be able to get UDFA's that would otherwise be late round picks in other drafts.

This will be a great draft for o-line and d-line. Just not as good for the skill queer positions.

Yeah, there appears to be no franchise QB in the draft, nor does there appear to be an elite RB or WR. I think most here could say that without talking to a GM.

I think to say it's the worst in the last 10 years is a stretch. Look at 2009:

Aside from Stafford, the first few rounds were pretty poor.

I think this draft class is stacked from the 2nd round on down...
